NBC, Fox tops on Tuesday

'Talent,' 'Kitchen' grab night's top scores

NBC’s combo of ”America’s Got Talent” and newcomer ”It’s Worth What?” declined Tuesday but still earned the net a share of the night’s demo lead with Fox, whose ”Hell’s Kitchen” and ”MasterChef” gained.

According to preliminary national estimates from Nielsen, NBC’s hidden-treasure series ”It’s Worth What” averaged a 1.4 rating/5 share in adults 18-49 and 5.4 million viewers overall , down about 25% from its OK premiere of last week. ”America’s Got Talent” followed with its lowest Tuesday scores of the summer (3.0/9 in 18-49, 11.2 million viewers overall), though these numbers are expected to rise some in the nationals and the show is still the night’s No. 1 program.

Fox opened with a winning perf from ”Hell’s Kitchen” (2.6/9 in 18-49, 5.9 million viewers overall), which was up a tick week to week and easily led the 8 o’clock hour in key demos. And up a little bit more was ”MasterChef” (2.4/7 in 18-49, 5.8 million viewers overall), which placed a solid second in demos in the 9 o’clock hour to NBC’s ”Talent.” This was the highest-rated Tuesday of the summer for Fox, which tied NBC for the night’s 18-49 lead and won outright in 18-34.

ABC had a modest night, opening with decent numbers for a repeat ”Wipeout” (1.3/5 in 18-49, 4.9 million viewers overall), which was followed by a third-place finish at 9 o’clock for the season finale of new series ”101 Ways to Leave a Game Show” (1.4/4 in 18-49, 4.4 million viewers overall); while not a great performer, ”Game Show” typically performed in line with its lead-in and had to do battle with tough NBC competition (both ”The Voice” and ”America’s Got Talent”). Closing out Tuesday for the Alphabet was drama ”Combat Hospital” (0.9/3 in 18-49, 3.8 million viewers overall), which remains low but was up a tick week to week.

CBS aired repeats of ”NCIS” (1.3/4 in 18-49, 8.7 million viewers overall) and ”NCIS: Los Angeles” (1.1/3 in 18-49, 6.5 million viewers overall), followed by an original ”48 Hours Mystery” (1.0/3 in 18-49, 5.4 million viewers overall).

Preliminary 18-49 averages for the night: Fox, 2.5/8; NBC, 2.5/7; Univision, 1.4/4; ABC, 1.2/4; CBS, 1.1/3; CW, 0.3/1.

In total viewers: NBC, 9.3 million; CBS, 6.9 million; Fox, 5.8 million; ABC, 4.3 million; Univision, 3.6 million; CW, 0.7 million.
